Storyline

The pilot for the popular TV series is set during 24 frantic hours in the lives of a group of doctors, nurses, and staff members of a busy emergency room at a Chicago hospital. They deal with the seemingly endless casualties that stumble into their place of employment. The central characters are the chief resident and family man Dr. Mark Greene, who is considering a job in private practice due to pressure from his demanding law student wife Jennifer; outgoing Dr. Doug Ross, who deals with cases in his own personal way; straight-arrow Dr. Susan Lewis, trying to get by another long 36-hour shift; inexperienced third-year med student John Carter; cocky surgical resident Dr. Peter Benton; and troubled chief nurse Carol Hathaway.

Best Hospital show ever
21 August 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If you are ever going to embark on a TV marathon then this is the show to watch. Many many seasons of it. This is the starting point. Episode 1 season 1. It's a bit dated and stuff being in 1994 but it is still pretty good and fresh even with todays standard. There are some shows that are based on characters and some on situations. This is definitely a character driven show.

Even from this one the show knows what it is and creates a world with characters and vibe. It really feels like a real hospital. You feel for the characters and what they are going through. Pretty good. Even though I have seen it before many years ago. You kind of forget what happens and it is the kind of show with so much going on that you can watch it again.
